I just wanted to share our Caribbean reef octopus named Violet. We received her from KP Aquatics a few months ago. She’s already grown what seems like 10 times her original size. We barely saw her the first month and a half but she eventually lost her fear and now comes out to play on a daily basis! One picture next to a water bottle for size reference.

Hey! She’s doing great. We fortunately made it through the hurricane and only lost power for a day. She’s also learned that she can squirt me with water when I interact with her. I’m honestly not sure if she’s playful or evil 😂
